Mahamudra Silent Retreat

Session 3 (July 30-August 8)
Students who attend sessions 1 and/or 2 are welcome to stay for this silent retreat, which is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice and study. Students may also join this Mahamudra Retreat without having attended either of the two previous 9-day Mahamudra programs if they have previous experience with Mahamudra meditation, such as having taken Mahamudra at a previous Summer Institute or having received practice instructions from a Mahamudra teacher. (No elegibility application required.)
